In the Unix VM you can set an environment variable or command line argument to 
change the encoding of input events. This changes what gets sent to the 

Perhaps either providing a way to pass down the encoding requirements to the 
VM or giving an alternate way to launch the VM for older images might be OK.

After all, I suspect that people who are trying to use a new VM with a 2.8 
image would probably be somewhat tech savvy.
